If that's not a star cast I don't know what is. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Do you know if Philippe will be playing Sesto or Tolomeo?

I'm sorry, I must have been sleeping. The tickets for Salzburg will be quite expensive, I expect. Do you have an idea what the price range will be?

Seeing the cast list I'm thrilled Ruben Drole is in it too! He's a great baritone and actor plus he's a cutie smile
Now please tell me this will be broadcast in any shape or form...

Yes, exactly, it is written in the program now. So there will be Kowalski, von Otter and Bartoli, literally generations of great singers. I am sure PhJ will enjoy that very much. And lucky for everyone who will be able to hear it.

Dear Duffy!!
Hope to see you on Sunday, and in my case, taking me a good "Albariño" (one of the finest wines from Spain) with ham. I try not to pass a number of drinks wise, I do not want to lose any of that Sesto dressed in French archaeologist-adventurer English. I also do not want to lose any of the other... But the first is the first.

Thanks for opening my appetite with the pictures!.

He is supposed to be an adolescent, hence the kneesocks, sandals and short trousers. Maybe he.ll start a new trend. The toyboy look!

And the belly...ach, who needs a sixpack anyway. It used to be a lifebelt. Laughing

As a singer, he has well developed abdominal muscles, but they are covered with a small layer of the good life. tongue

Edit: Just like the rest of us. blush Cheese and port, toast with foie gras and Sauternes, chocolate desert with Pedro Ximenez, stew of lamb with a Tempranilllo...ach, there's just too much good life...yup, and out goes the sixpack!

I got a digital video recorder a few days ago, the only task is to load it up, I think it'll work out allright, I've got a sort of expert at home, we'll see.... And I expect the event to be available on ARTE+7 for some time, apart from the livestream ARTE is offering. smile

Well, nevertheless I will go to Salzburg in August, although Giulio Cesare has to do with eyes closed (except when Philippe is on stage).
The biggest cheer was for Sesto! Wonderful, wonderful! Tomorrow we will see in ARTE!
The production must have been extremely horrible, repetitive and vulgar.
I'm sorry. I was very scared. affraid

I posted an emotional review in another thread, but just wanted to add some of the other performers singing impressions ; I cannot believe some "boos" to the scenographer. There were silly moments of course, and the car door got stuck at the wrong moment. Julius C tries to step out, nope, another try, nope, oops...let's try the other door....He he. Pompey's head, total dud, no blood....come on! Is that the best you can do people?And Tolemy endlessly trying to get it on with everyone, anyone, wall,sheets, etc to no avail. In general the singing was really accomplished. I found Dumaux's voice extremely unpleasant and shrill, metallic, but I had not heard him before. Kowalski was adequate, controlled, careful. Bartoli flirted her way through trills and coloratura with many an eyelash batting. Von Otter is such an elegant lady, she looked beautiful and her duetto with Sesto was interesting, the positions conveying the drama of the separation.....Beautiful. Curio, and all the troupe were very effective and I love his spirited arias. BUT this was Sesto's night. I cannot describe it so you HAVE to see him in the replay. Philippe tears his soul to pieces in his acting. I love Lorraine Hunt's Sesto and though no one could top her. Philippe has similar tone, more boyish, gorgeous, goden, but his acting is superb. And I loved and adored his fluffiness. SO cute. The public rewarded all with many many applauses and I get to see it all tomorrow again. Wish you were all here. I also hope tomorrow I can give him a little gift and bow low at his feet. Salve Sesto!!!! flowers

The historical Sextus Pompeius was far from fluffy, nor a crybaby, but a tough Roman general who continued his fathers war against Julius Caesar and who proved to be very hard to beat.

At the time of this opera he was 20, Ptolemeus was only 15, which would explain why he is portrayed like a horny idiot.

Philippe played Tolomy himself when he was young, and if you girls think this role without a shirt is already OMG, then you.re in for a surprise if you see that production....

Carolineleiden, Yes, The historical Sextus was indeed a toughie and accomplished soldier. What I loved in the opera was of course a fictional Sesto, just a young boy, very much like Lorraine Hunt portrayed in her DVD of the opera. A vulnerable youngster who has to grow up pretty quickly in a harsh cruel world. Everyday life in present times. Philippe's lovely physique has not much to do with all this, only that I think he is adorable/\ Plus the thought occurred to me how difficult it must be to expose oneself so much to a theater full of people even if you are in the business of acting or making movies. Naturally he has to have toughened to all sorts of situations in different roles and it comes with the territory. Still it is courageous of singers especially to go out there "armed" with some vocal chords and breath. I admire this deeply of anyone who is out there for the world to see and hear. Big bow to any performers out there!!!!! bravo! bow

There were silly moments of course, and the car door got stuck at the wrong moment. Julius C tries to step out, nope, another try, nope, oops...let's try the other door....He he. Pompey's head, total dud, no blood....come on! Is that the best you can do people?And Tolemy endlessly trying to get it on with everyone, anyone, wall,sheets, etc to no avail. In general the singing was really accomplished. I found Dumaux's voice extremely unpleasant and shrill, metallic, but I had not heard him before. Kowalski was adequate, controlled, careful. Bartoli flirted her way through trills and coloratura with many an eyelash batting. Von Otter is such an elegant lady, she looked beautiful and her duetto with Sesto was interesting, the positions conveying the drama of the separation.....Beautiful. Curio, and all the troupe were very effective and I love his spirited arias. BUT this was Sesto's night. I cannot describe it so you HAVE to see him in the replay. Philippe tears his soul to pieces in his acting. I love Lorraine Hunt's Sesto and though no one could top her. Philippe has similar tone, more boyish, gorgeous, goden, but his acting is superb. And I loved and adored his fluffiness. SO cute. The public rewarded all with many many applauses and I get to see it all tomorrow again. Wish you were all here. I also hope tomorrow I can give him a little gift and bow low at his feet. Salve Sesto!!!! flowers

I had my own reservations about the staging on the other thread. Since I didn't watched the whole opera I didn't hear the boos, though hardly surprising regarding the modern stagings. Boos are more and more acceptable, but I noticed that the audience was very enthusiastic and clapped generously.

We do differ regarding Dumeau. I think he has a great resonant and brilliant voice. De gustibus non est disputandum. flowers kiss
